Fan columnist Michael Smith explains why he wants Crystal Palace to appoint Sean Dyche as the club's next manager. Steve Parish and the Crystal Palace board have plenty of options to choose from when appointing their new manager, both from Britain and abroad. In this author's opinion, however, there is only one outstanding candidate: Burnley's Sean Dyche.
Crystal Palace fan columnist Michael Smith is pleading for managerial stability at Selhurst Park. I feel very sorry for Steve Parish. I'm sure Parish and the other board members thought that Big Sam was the perfect appointment for Crystal Palace, and someone who could go on and build a legacy. Sadly it was not meant to be. I am not going to criticise Big Sam. He did a fantastic job in keeping Palace up.
Fan columnist for the Croydon Advertiser, Michael Smith, analyses the areas of the Crystal Palace squad that require strengthening this summer. Generally, I think the core of this Palace squad is strong, and includes a lot of individual talent. I stick by my belief that this is a top ten squad. Had Big Sam been in charge all season, that is where I'm convinced they would have finished. Because of that belief, I do not believe the squad needs a radical overhaul this summer.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
